ViPad desktop app launcher
Searching for an oft-used software via the Start Menu can take time if you have several apps installed. Sure, you can quickly search for it using the taskbar search bar, but many prefer to place its icon on the desktop instead. Over a period of time, the icon clutter could increase, and we again spend time searching for its icon. This is where ViPad can help you.
By using ViPad, you can club all the related or preferred apps together, and consolidate them. You can create as many sections as you want and then open your desired app right from the ViPad launcher. For instance, if you have three or four browsers, and you use them simultaneously, you can put them in one Tab. You can similarly place your image editing tools in another tab, and so on.. The following options and features are included in this app,
The tool offers the following options and features:

After installing ViPad you will see a blank tab, where you can place your icons. Use the drag & drop method to place icons in the tab.
To add a new tab, click on the Plus sign. If you want to move one app from one tab to another, right-click on the icon > Move to > Select tab.

PS: Although I checked the file with my Kaspersky & Malwarebytes and found it to be clean, based on the comments, you may first get it scanned ay VirusTotal.com and then decide if you want to download it.
